Payment prioritisation and liquidity risk in collateralised interbank payment systems

Abstract

Participants in interbank payment systems manage a stream of payment requests of varying priority to minimise their total costs. However, individually optimal strategies may conflict with system-wide optimality and can lead to inefficient equilibria, where banks cannot meet obligations in a timely manner. We construct a model of a collateralised payment system and demonstrate that socially optimal states exist in which banks should delay a proportion of non-priority payments in an internal queue, but banks’ strategising behaviour leads to liquidity hoarding and increased systemic cost. We discuss how this behaviour can be reduced using measures available to a regulator.
